Municipal Bonds for EB-5 Investment

Access the USA, LLC (AUSA) manages Washington Regional Center (WRC), which offers Washington State-backed bonds as an investment vehicle for obtaining EB-5 Visas (Green Cards). Washington State sells municipal bonds to finance major infrastructure projects. AUSA has specially designed an EB-5 Visa program that utilizes the security and transparency of Washington State bonds in helping EB-5 investors to obtain U.S. residency status. We strongly believe in managing investment and financial risk by offering only municipal bonds with very high credit ratings.* As a type of security, municipal bonds are generally rated almost as high as U.S. Treasury Bonds.

Transparent Investment Exit

Washington State municipal bonds are traded in highly-liquid bond markets every business day. We believe in managing the investment exit risk involved in the EB-5 process by only offering highly-liquid bonds sold on the public bond market. With Washington State bonds, you can easily track the market value of your investment and participate in a highly-liquid market.

Low Project Risks

Government-managed infrastructure projects generally carry lower failure risks than other types of EB-5 regional center projects, because the State of Washington has some of the best creditable records in managing and assuming responsibilities for designing, developing, financing, building and operating its infrastructure projects. State-managed projects significantly lower the possibility of project failure or delays that cause issues with investors' visa petitions. Large infrastructure projects also create many jobs for the local economy, which further ensures investors will be able to meet the minimum requirement of 10 jobs mandated by USCIS.

Key Advantages of AUSA's EB-5 Program

Better Risk Management

While all investments carry risks, smart investors understand the value of eliminating unnecessary risks. At AUSA, we re-engineer the EB-5 investment structure to dramatically reduce the risks associated with each stage of the project lifecycle, so that investors can obtain their U.S. Green Card with confidence. Keeping the investment process simple leaves less margin for error. When it comes to EB-5 investments, there is simply no room for error.

Fully Financed EB-5 Project

AUSA selects well-planned and well-financed infrastructure projects that are managed by the Washington State. Since the State has superior credit ratings, all bonds issuance not only are likely to be sold out immediately, but also are guaranteed by the underwriter (i.e., if bonds are not sold, the underwriter covers the shortage). A fully funded project ensures on-time development and proper job creation, both of which conditions need to be met for successful EB-5 Visa petition.

Many U.S. Jobs

Large infrastructure construction projects create many jobs, and the State of Washington goes through careful planning, hiring, and managing of these construction jobs. In terms of reporting job counts for investor's EB-5 petition, AUSA works with well-established economists to properly apply the appropriate input-output economic model using data supplied by the State of Washington. To ensure maximum safety, AUSA always takes the most conservative job figures that far exceed the 10 U.S. jobs requirement.
